Virtual bike tours

I was asked to think of ways to promote Ørland at a public stand and I’m building a “virtual bike ride” installation. Ørland is completely flat and a very nice way to see the area is to go by bicycle. The participants sits on the bike and controls the video by pedaling through them. I’m using Pure data, Gem and Arduino. I built a small rectifier to convert the current from the dynamo to something the arduino can read more easily. The bike will be shown in Trondheim the 4th of August at “Smaken av Ørland”.
